Event description

Description

Please note the event is being updated as details are being confirmed.

A speaker is confirmed: Liz Hnat - '94 to Now

This will be Liz Hnat's personal perspective on how the digital scene in Sheffield has changed since 1994, highlighting how women have contributed to that scene and rolling right around to where it might be heading in the future. This talk is based on part truths and dodgy geographical mapping skills - but the overall themes should ring true - no tech or design know-how or lingo required!

What do people working in tech do and how did they get started?

There'll next be opportunity to learn about a wide a range of roles within the technology and digital sector. We'll have people working in, for example, design, development, analysis, product management, marketing and social media who will be able to explain what a typical day is (if it exists!) and the different ways to get started or progress.

Over to you

Bring along any Sheffield women in tech news you have to pass on, events to advertise, questions to ask or ideas to share.

There'll be time for more drinks, snacks and chat until we close at 20.00.


The small but important print

Everyone is welcome. You don’t have to work in digital right now, you don’t have to identify as a woman, you don’t have to know how to code or how to explain bitcoin. You do have come in, be open and ready to participate in bringing about positive change.

Babies and children are welcome to attend with a (vaguely) responsible adult.

Whilst the evening is not run by Sheffield Digital, we will be following their Code of Conduct.

If you can’t make the event and would like to be kept updated, sign up to our mailing list or follow and join in on Twitter @ShfWIT.
